  • Grand dad you are gone but are never forgotten... We think of you often and fondly. You and dad were our safety beacons that we always looked for and headed towards. It broke us all when you passed. You both had left a void that will never be filled. It was a pleasure to have you in our lives as a strong and loving Grand dad. Some one we could confide in. You would listen intently and give us your opinion. (Such a strong, loving and giving Male Role Model). Aroha nui Donna-Maria & Penny Lincoln xox
